Waterbury Qualifier 2020 On March 8th, 2020, we were on top of the world. We had just won the Engineering Inspiration Award at the Waterbury competition. It celebrates outstanding success in advancing respect and appreciation for engineering within a team's school or organization and community. Then a short 5 days later, the entire world changed! But FIRST is not just about robots; it is about bringing the excitement of STEM to the community. In normal times, Farmington High School Robotics team strives to bring more hands-on STEAM activities to our community designed for young people of all ages. We think you will agree that we have not let COVID slow us down. Please consider supporting us with a donation!

The FHS Robotics Team has been called an exemplar by school administration. In most years over 80% of our graduating seniors go to pursue STEM fields in college and the workplace. Our Alumni consistently cite their time on the Farmington team and in FIRST as an experience that positively impacted their life and sparked future pursuits. Students get to see how professionals do things and professionals get to experience the energy and curiosity the young learners can bring to a task as well as the satisfaction of knowing they are making a difference in the career choices of the students.

On our team, we pride ourselves on the culture we have where students take on meaningful leadership roles in both engineering and outreach projects. We are proud that the Farmington team is "mentor-nurtured but student-driven." Your support will enable us to continue to compete, give back to the community, and develop young students into STEM leaders.
